Johnny was a schoolboy

When he heard his first Beatles song

Love Me Do, I think it was
         G                        A
And from there it didn't take him long

Got himself a guitar
        G          A
Used to play every night
              E

"Hey, Mama, I'm goin' away

I'm Gonna hit the big time
      G                 A
Gonna be a big star someday"
          E
Mama came to the door
       G               A
With a teardrop in her eye
              E
Johnny said, "Don't cry, Mama"

Smiled and waved goodbye

Bottle of whisky, sleeping tablets by his head
